In line with these milestone lengths of service, they also operate a Loyalty Reward program – this is a bonus (although they prefer to refer to this as ‘extra spending money’) that is awarded once these milestones are reached. The thinking behind the program is that not only does it recognise and reward commitment and loyalty to the business, but it can also be used to fund the adventures to be had during sabbaticals – this is the main intention and driving force behind the program. Our client want to give their people extra spending money so that they can truly enjoy their sabbaticals.
